Millington Central High Football Player Dies After Injury During Practice
This wasn't the first story involving a football player's death that I've covered.. But it may have been the first in Memphis. Players who die at practice (and the number is very small) usually succumb to heat exhaustion. This student athlete took a hit, complained of chest pains, and died on the way to the hospital. I was first on the scene there when news broke of this death. They are never easy stories to cover.
